Donald McGregor

  • Birth 1842
  • Death 8 Oct 1871
  • Burial Peshtigo, Marinette County, Wisconsin, USA
  • Memorial ID 15363318

Age 29 years. The McDonald and McGregor families all share a single marker. The two families are probably buried in the nearby mass grave.

On a marker beside the monument of the McGregor and McDonald families:
"On the night of the fire Mr. McDonald took his wife and nine children to the company boarding house on the East Side of the river and told them not to leave, thinking the river would act as a firebreak. In the course of the fire the boarding house and all its occupants were reduced to ashes, making recognition impossible. The same is true of the McGregors, although Dan McGregor's watch was found and the hands indicated five minutes after ten. It is believed that this monument is a memorial to the names it bears and that there are no bodies buried here."
